I have performed design consulting services for the Curtain Wall and Building Envelope industry for the past 4+ years now. I have held instrumental roles on some of the tallest, most elaborate structures worldwide, including Lotte Super Tower in Seoul, Korea; Sao Bento Office Tower in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Rosslyn Gateway in San Diego, California. My ability to understand complex geometry and build detailed 3D-models in real-time has set me apart and facilitated significant professional growth fueled by a strong passion for pushing the envelope.
